Is my customer data protected? What about GDPR?
Do you process my customer data?
Our app does not use, collect or store any personal data from your customers.
On the other hand, it uses the browser local storage to remember the selected currency. This is done to improve user experience.
Let's imagine, for example, a US citizen travelling to France. The app will autodetect the location and it will show prices in Euro so the American will probably select manually USD in the currency drop-down. To avoid having to select USD on every page, the currency choice is stored.
Please note that the selected currency information, opposite to Google Analytics or other services, is not collected by us or processed statistically, it is only stored in the customer browser and never reaches our servers.
Are you GDPR-compliant?
GDPR (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation) is a regulation from the European Union that imposes some rules on companies that collect or use personal data. Currency Converter+ is not affected by that regulation because it does not process or uses any personal data.
And what about cookies or analytics?
On the other hand, we do not use any tracker software, such as Google Analytics or Facebook Pixel.
We took a radical approach to data protection by not accessing or using any data at all to further respect individual rights.
We are also a zero-marketing company (we do not contact customers proactively) and we don't send any automated emails.
